6:36am
the eagles. the numbers aren't exactly in their favor when it comes to their rookie quarterback. the skins are lost to the last eight they faced back in 2005. they have a chance to change that this sunday against the eagles new face. they are using a new approach, fresh off the bye week looking at the last seven games almost like a new season. he has been struggling. so what does the team think is the biggest concern this weekend? >> to me i think it's the big play. if you let them hit a big play and a quick strike then they can kill you. if you force them to snap it again and again and give them a chance to make mistakes, that is something we have to try to use. >> the offense won't change. it'll come out. they will give you different
6:37am
personal groupings, they will run a lot of different things and you have to be able to with stand the onslaught early. then you settle in. >> already. our coverage of the redskins game sunday starts at 11:00 a.m. with redskins game time. kickoff is at one at fedex field. >> all right. good luck. >> coming up next edward, bella and their little girl are on the big screen. >> breaking dawn part two hits theaters this weekend. we have the take on the long awaited release as the news continues. u
6:38am
6:39am
6:40am
fans have been waiting a while so will breaking dawn part two deliver in movie reviewer kevin mccarthy with 106.7 the fandowns us now. >> how are you? >> good to see you. >> these are big movies we have to talk about today. >> huge. >> everybody is going to want
6:41am
to know what your take is. the twilight saga, part two. what did you think of this one? everybody is going to go see them. >> but this is a movie for people who also get dragged to the twilight films as well. it is really good. this series has made over $2.5 billion worldwide. this is the fifth film. supposed to be the final film. you never know if they'll do spinoffs. this is the final film in the book series. this is the perfect way to send the audience off. i feel like they really focused on giving the audience the best end possible. this is there is a massive, massive surprise, a huge twist that does not exist in the book and i saw the film with about 80% twilight fans and they were having heart attacks in the theater. it is so much fun to watch it with an audience. i mean the fans go absolutely crazy. i will say this. over the years, even the harry
6:42am
potter films, i loved those movies but i felt the ending between voled mart and harry was a little bit anticipate climactic. that battle scene should have been 30 minutes long this. particular movie, they give you a sendoff. the chemistry is great. the first 30 minutes, the effects are a little bit cheesy. i felt like when she is running through the trees and fitting the deer, that stuff was a little bit cheesy. it looked kind of bad for a film that should have cost with a more to make. it's fun movie, a cultural phenomenon. i think that edward and bella, their relationship, you've grown to like them as a couple on screen. i think the film does a great job. it allows the audience to have i great sendoff. >> what about a lot of kids that seem to get into the movie. do you think it is appropriate to take kids? >> this is one of the more hard pg-13 films that i've seen. there are a lot of decap degrees in the film. >> that might be a problem.
6:43am
>> but here is how they get around it. there is no blood. it is very minimal blood. so can you show -- they show the violence but if there is no blood there, you don't get the r rating. that is what the directsor was telling mee. that is what happened with bill kill when he turned the scene black and white, no blood. it is definitely a harder pg-13 so don't take the little ones to see it. >> did you give it? >> i gave it a 3 1/2 out of five. i would say this is best, then eclipse, then twilight breaking down and new moon was terrible. all that was bella falls off a motorcycle and gets hurt and taylor lautner walks up and says let me take my shirt off and you'll feel better. >> i always say this wrong.
6:44am
>> anna karenina. this is the 12th adaptation of the book by tolstoy, the 12th. this is 19th century russia. russia. it's love story. it's great story but what the director has done is he is telling it like a stage play. the majority of the film is shot on an actual stage so. when you are watching it and we have this cool clip here, i'll show you shortly. it is shot just like -- you have the video. look at the camera there. watch the set pieces being moved into frame. that is actually how the movie looks in front of the camera. there are people just moving set pieces and then here comes jude law. he will sit down at that table. >> do you like that?
6:45am
>> it is distracting. >> to quote a song, it's beautiful disaster it is a film that looks gorgeous but it takes away from the story. you focus too much on the process as opposed to engaging in the performance. i think it's film you can watch visually but i had a hard time connecting to the characters. i think it's good matinee with a lot of oscar buzz for it right now. >> that is what i was wondering. >> jude law is fantastic if the film. i feel like the movie could have been less focused on the process and more focused on the story. and this morning, coming unat 8:45, we have a one-on-one exclusive sit-down with my buddy robert pat inson right there. i asked him if they could drop the twilight cast into any classic film of all time
6:46am
whooshing would they -- who would they have the best time with. his answer was the best answer i've gotten on any junket. >> okay. >> so tune it. >> i've got one more question. you promise the special effects are better. >> oh, the special effects in this one -- the first one hay terrible budget. first couple. it was like an episode of the flintstones. >> i want to pay money to sit in the theater this weekend and watch the fans' reaction of surprise. it is awesome. >> i wanted to know if he asked robert pattinson about that whole break-up thing. i don't care about the movie. i want to know about the drama. >> me too. >> all right. >> weather, we're starting cold but we'll finish the day with sunshine and temperatures in the mid others t will be a nice afternoon. 4 # right now in washington. here we go. -- 42 right now in washington. 32 in frederick. we are 31 in hagerstown. 30 the winning number in winchester. good morning to you.
6:47am
30 in martinsburg as well. and low 40s here to the south. quantico, 43. 42 in fredericksburg. looking at the radar, couple of showers south and east of the city. southern maryland, st. mary's city may be getting a shower and across the bay over towards oxford and as you get up towards cambridge, a light sprinkle. all this pushing off to the north and east with a weak little upper level disturbance that has been coming through. notice the trend here is to pull the clouds up toward philadelphia and new york and we've got clear skies out to the west. if you look out the window here shortly you will see us quickly transition here from some cloud cover to mostly sunny conditions as the sun gets up. it should be a beautiful day. high pressure will build in here and deliver a nice couple of days. at the surface, high pressure will keep things nice and quiet. we'll be a little cool with our winds out of the north and northeast both today and
6:48am
tomorrow. a decent looking weekend. sundays now looking pretty good. 54 today. winds here out of north at five to 10 as that area of high pressure stays just to our north and your accu-weather seven-day forecast, weekend looks good. temperatures mid others saturday and sunday. early next week, if you are traveling, tuesday or wednesday, quiet conditions across the mid-atlantic and a sneak peek at thanksgiving, upper 50s, sunshine, perfect if you want to go out and play a little football before the big meal. should be fine. we are looking great for thanksgiving right now. >> great. >> still a week away though so. >> yes,. >> it is tony perkins. >> hello, hello. good morning, everybody. guess what it is time for. >> ask stoney and tucker. the most popular segment in morning television except for kevin mccarthy's movie reviews. today's question is from shawn. that is the only name we have who simply want to know how did they come up with the names of
6:49am
the week or the names of the days of the week. i think we left something out there. how did they come up with the names of the days of the week. >> wednesday, thursday, friday. >> do you have any clues? >> i don't. i really don't. >> greek history. i don't know. >> close. >> good guess, wisdom. >> the names of the days of the week were originally -- they were originally named -- thousands of years ago, they were named by the ancients, the saxons and the force. >> the early vikings. >> they were hanging on the and checking out the stars because they didn't have television. >> no movies. >> that is how things got started, right? >> now, back when they started naming the days of the week, they could -- there were no telescopes and they would look
6:50am
at the sky and everything. they could see with the naked eye five planets. they also back then thought that the sun and the moon were planets as well. they included those. so they saw in their mind seven planets. and so they decided well let's name these days after the planets. >> society first one makes sense, sunday. what was that named after. >> monday,. >> the moon. >> right. tuesday was named after -- i knew i would lose this. do you remember? >> the force god tiw. >> yes. the norce god was name tiw and
6:51am
it became tuesday day. wednesday is from the god woden. >> these are good names for future children by the way, woden. >> woden was the equivalent of mercury because it moved very quickly around the sky as if on winged feet. so that was wednesday. thursday, can you think about greek -- or norse mythology. >> from the marvel comic. >> thor. >> now, friday is kind of an exception. friday was named after a goddess of love. there is debate. there are a couple of different ones, both start with an f. there is kind of debate as to which one it was named after although there are some indication that the two goddesses of love were actually just one and they somehow became two people at one point. >> too much love to go around. >> so that is what friday is named after. tucker, saturday?
6:52am
>> and name in honor of saturn, right? >> gosh. i never knew this. >> interesting. so how about that. it is actually rather simple with the exception of some confusion about friday. but there you go. >> they could have done us a favor if they had made like a four-day week and then two of those days could be off and we would only have to work two days. >> what? >> i mean the cop september of seven days is arbitrary, right? >> as is much of what we take for granted every day. time. >> friday, it makes sense why we love it. >> goddess of love. quite right. there you go. so, there you go. thank you very much for the question, shawn. if you have a question that you want to have answered, all you need to do is go to myfoxdc.com. xdc.com. click on the weather tab. this is the second appearance of they might be giants in the last week or so. i think our producer likes they mite be giants. >> i think she does too.
6:53am
